Interview Day

Each year, we at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) are privileged to meet a wide range of academically gifted, multi-talented applicants who share our pursuit of medical excellence and extraordinary service. Here, interview day allows you the opportunity to meet our dedicated faculty and current students, tour our campus facilities, and learn more about what both the School and NYC have to offer you as a student, a post-graduate, and for your professional career.

Our interview days begin early, so we offer you the opportunity to stay overnight with a current student, the perfect insider source to tell you about the day in the life of an Icahn medical student.

The amazing collaboration and support from my fellow classmates and our professors is hands down the best thing about attending Icahn. Everyone is so willing to help each other.

— Jessica, Second-year MD student

The night before my interview I reviewed the School’s website to prepare for what I assumed would be questions about things like my take on ethical scenarios in health care. Instead, we talked mostly about my upbringing and my passion for medicine! My interview at Icahn felt like a conversation; it was very relaxed.
